Captain Frank Tompkins was born in Washington, D. C, September 
28, 1868, and has had an active and successful army career. He was appoint- 
ed from civil life August, 1891, having declined an appointment to West Point 
the year previous in order to profit from the three years' promotion thus gained. 
He graduated from the Infantry and Cavalry School, Fort Leavenworth, Kan- 
sas, in the class of 1897. 

During the Malvar Campaign, under Major General Bell, Captain Tomp- 
kins was mentioned in orders, for making important captures, breaking up and 
destroying insurrecto bands and strongholds. 

Captain Tompkins was also mentioned in orders for breaking the world's 
record, for marching a troop of cavalry in the tropics. This occurred in Cuba 
in April, 1908, when in command of Troop G, 11th Cavalry. He brought his 
men into camp at six o'clock in the morning after having ridden 125 miles 
in 30 hours. Both men and horses were in perfect condition. The troop 
was composed of 45 men and five officers upon whose arrival the garrison turned 
out to give a warm welcome. The general in command personally congrat- 
ulated Captain Tompkins on the splendid record, the performance being a 
high tribute to his excellent discipline. Major General Bell has said of Cap- 
tain Tompkins, "That he always commands the best troop in his regiment." 

Captain Tompkins is married, his wife being the daughter of General 
T. F. Barr, retired, a distinguished military man. They have one son. 

That so able an officer as Captain Tompkins should be detailed to Nor- 
wich University is only another evidence of the continued high regard which 
the war department has for this institution as a military school. The Uni- 
versity is to be congratulated upon receiving the service of Captain Tompkins, 
insuring as it does a continuation of the highest efficiency in military instruction.

Baccalaureate Sermon, Dewey Hall. 

THE ninety-second Commencement of Norwich University opened Sunday, 
June 19th, by the Baccalaureate Sermon delivered by the Rev. Sherman 
Goodwin of South Royalton. The chapel was filled with Cadets and friends, 
who listened with interest to the message delivered by Mr. Goodwin. 
The exercises in the hall were followed by evening parade. 


2:30 P. M. in the afternoon. 

Austin Trophy Contest, State Range. 

All those who had qualified as expert riflemen in the previous State Rifle 
Practice, were allowed to enter the contest. 

Sergeant Roscoe P. Lynde, Co. A., won the Gold Medal by scoring 125 
points out of a possible 150. Sergeant Denton J. Smith, Co. C, won the Sil- 
ver Medal with the score of 124. Sergeant Smith was awarded the Silver 
Medal because he scored higher than Sergeant Walbridge did, at the longest 

The winners of the medals in 1909 were not able to defend their medals 
so could not hold them permanently as stated in the conditions governing the 

These medals are given by Mr. Fred T. Austin, M. S., First Lieutenant, 
Artillery Corps, U. S. A. 



On Tuesday the friends of the Cadets began to arrive. The day was 
taken up largely by preliminary contests in horsemanship. Dress Parade 
was held in the evening for the visitors, and at 7:30 in the evening the Seniors 
presented their annual commencement concert. The entertainment this year 
was by the Delphians of Boston. The following program which was rendered 
by them was interesting from start to finish and enjoyed by all.

Senior g>umm?r grljool 

' I V HE Monday following Commencement there gathered at Dodge Hall Dad 
■*■ Winslow, Pat Carleton, Jimmie O'Hanlon, and Socrates Dix and twenty- 
nine members of the class of 1911. Each man came with a particular inten- 
tion. Pat and Socrates were watching Dad's check book; Jimmie was figuring 
how much potatoes and soap he could spare for the cows, and the Seniors were 
looking for anything that was a graft. Such intentions differed so much, 
however, from that of the wielder of the big stick that they all took second 
place when Dad said, "That they were to put in four weeks surveying for a 

The first day was devoted to transporting the baggage and equipment 
for making camp so that summer school could begin. It came at 6 A. M., 


when that groan producing call, "Everybody Out," emanated from headquar- 
ters. After all had eaten breakfast and roll had been called, the instruments 
were shouldered and at the command, "Down the Read," everybedy proceed- 
ed to the station last set 
by the class of 1910 and 
took up the work of con- 
tinuing the survey. 

Many were the experi- 
ences of these engineers 
in making the survey for 
t lie Stony Brook Railroad. 
Running a P. line was 
great until we struck Mos- 
quito Land, then it was a 
different story. None ex- 
cept Ed. Hovey ever saw 
such affectionate insects 

as were encountered there. When Ed. told about the enormous mosquitos 
that prevailed on his grandfather's farm, however, all agreed that it was 
some consolation to know they were not in the worst place on earth. 

The work progressed very well without a stop until Dent's supply of chew- 
ing gum was exhausted, then operations ceased for an hour and twenty min- 
utes while Dent walked five miles to town and back to replenish his stock. 
After we had run enough P. Line to work on the rest of the session, we went 
back and run in the Location Line. This did not cause much difficulty 
except that whenever we tried to check the work we found too great an 
error in our transit work. This error was reduced to a minimum, however, 
when Dorr explained how to split hairs and the rest of the work was accom- 
plished with speed and accuracy which was something marvelous. 

No one ever saw a bunch of fellows who were enjoying themselves any 
more than the men in our camp. Mayor O'Hanlon, with his faithful follow- 
ers O'Riley, O'Creed, and O'Donahue, tried to make out that every other day was 
Saint Patrick's Day, otherwise it was a very congenial aggregation. Do not 

think, however, that they 
did anything rash, for the 
worst that any of them 
did was to make way 
with the milk that was 
kept under the bridge. 
Strange to say, there were 
only two nights of our stay 
in camp that any one was 
aroused from his slum- 
bers. One of these in- 
stances was the night 
Jimmie slept with the 
boys, and the other was 


when Field dreamed that he was an egg, only to wake up and find out that 
he was, to the extent that he was only sandwiched. 

Thus you see how the class of 1911 looks back upon its last Summer School. 
And you under classmen, take it from the Seniors that in the line of good times 
at Norwich, Senior Summer School holds first place.

ilmttor Summer ^rljool. 

The summer of the year 1910 will, without doubt, go down in the history 
of the world, as one of the best if not the most, notable summers that has 
been recorded since old Father Time took the job of making the earth go around. 
This is due also, we believe, solely to the fact that the ancient and honorable 
class of 1912 took this time to tear off, what has come to be known as JUNIOR 

This so called school was down on the calendar as beginning at 10 A. M., 
Tuesday, August 8, 1910 A. D. Accordingly some of the more industrious 
among our number appeared on the scene at 10 o'clock sharp. Still others, 
believing it the height of good manners to be late at all social functions, put 
in their appearance next morning. Others showed up not at all. That ac- 
counts for all of us, — briefly, some were present and some were not. Only 
one instance was brought to light of a member being only "half present." 
Three Guesses! 


Roll call for the first day's 
work, — which by the way was 
Wednesday, brought to light 
an ideal collection of costumes. 
I venture to say that, could 
an "antique costume" collector 
have had the privilege of gazing 
on the varied collection, there 
would have been tears of joy 
in his eyes. Everything from 
a full dress down to an abori- 
gines conception of hot weather 
garb might have been seen. 
There was "Bill" Scanlon with his Louis (XII) sack coat. There 

was "Teddy" Adams with his African hunting outfit, a'la T. Roosevelt. "Bill" 
Heathfield came out with a fine new Tuxedo (tobacco can). And I might 
go on to enumerate grotesque outfits by the score but lack of space and the 
weather will not permit. 

A row of teeth was to be seen on the face of each of our instructors, due, 
we surmised, to the merriment they evidently derived from the fact that they 
were about to perpetrate some huge joke upon us.. Joke is just about what 
it turned out to be, for the great majority of us were used to about a fifteen 
hour day spent at digging ditches or pounding rocks (?) ! There was Prof. 
"Pat" known in real life as Prof. C. S. Carleton, who later developed an alarm- 
ing habit of turning up at the most unfortunate places, at the most untimely 
times, much to our discomfiture. He kindly assumed the responsibility for 
the field work. Mr. "Dad," sometimes known as Prof. A. E. Winslow, was 
chief of the office "gang," and occasional- 
ly took great pleasure in showing us 
the error of our ways. Prof. L. E. Dix 
was still another one of the sleuths 
whose duty it was to look wise and to see 
that we didn't loaf too much. The 
fourth and last member of the "wise ones" 
went by the name of Marshall Stocker, 
and later acquired that excellence in 
locating "spikes" buried in the road 
which only long and continued practice 
can give. 

The aggregation of knowledge seekers 
was divided every day into parties con- 
sisting of from three to five men each, — 
mostly three, and assigned sufficient work 
for the day. The work was of four 
classes, — leveling, stadia, road work and 
geodetic. For some strange reason 
the last named came to be the most 


popular, due, probably to 

the minimum amount of 

work gaining the maximum 

am uon t of credit. It was 

on these parties that the 

weary made up most of 

their lost beauty sleep. 

The only reason we know 

for reducing the number 

of men on each party from 

five to three, was that our 

worthy classmate, "Dub" 

Inglis, inadvertently took 

the wrong time to repose 

in the arms of Morpheus, and subsequently was found by that aforementioned 

sleuth, "Pat Carleton. 

The general plan of our work was to do the^ surveying necessary for run- 
ning new street lines, establish the necessary grades for a sewer system, and 

to add as many new stations to the triangulation system as possible towards 

Camel's Hump. The street lines and the sewer system were done for the town 

of Northfield. 

Rainy weather was ruled out of order by our esteemed weather prophet. 

It was our misfortune to get only two or three days of inclement weather to 

dampen our ardor, and enthusiasm for work. The only ambitious specimens 

who went down on the records for working right through the rain, were Adams, 

Jacobs Bros., and Hemenway. Of course you can't blame some people for 

what they don't know! 

The "powers that were" were very considerate of our likes and dislikes 

as regarded working hours. They stated emphatically that no night work 

was to be done. However, some of the "fus- 
sers" got in their alloted time evenings 
with the fair damsels of Northfield and 
vicinity. I will state, however, that "night 
work" as stated by the Professors had refer- 
ence simply to academic work, and not to 
social obligations. Beginning with the sec- 
ond week Bradley started on the downward 
path. The first indication of his downfall 
was his misfortune in being discovered 
downtown after seven P. M., walking the 
street and strewing peanut shucks all over 
the ground, with that air of deft precision 
and nonchalance that is Bradley's stock- 
in-trade. We are afraid he will wake up 
some fine morning to find himself forcibly 
urged by his Satanic Majesty to hustle it 
up, and not let the fire go out! 


One of the features of the school was the course in nature study, which 
in part constituted some of the work done on King Street. There, one could 
get an excellent view of the magnificent green hills which formed the back- 
ground, as well as the imposing public buildings of sky-scraper effect which 
lined the avenue. The citizens living in this region were only too willing to 
give us all the information desired, and many were the pleasant chats engaged 
in by the fair King Street maids, and would-be-engineers. 

Our work took us into all sections of the town, and also over the hills and 
surrounding country. The people of the town as a whole won our sincere and 
heartfelt thanks by the many little kindnesses which they bestowed upon us. 
It was not a rare thing for us to have some kind lady bring out cooling refresh- 
ments, or dainty articles of cooking, to keep us good-natured. 

The work assigned to the level parties was leveling the streets and estab- 
lishing bench marks, and leveling up to and connecting with the Senior Rail- 
road about four miles up Union Brook Valley. The steret leveling was an 
ideal work as we could always get in in time for dinner at noon. Connecting 
with the Senior Railroad was more difficult, as we got out so far that it became 
necessary to carry luncheon. There was, however, in this work the prerog- 
ative of sending for Barney Bogus and his taxicab. This was seldom done, 
however, as most of us preferred the quiet siesta while the instructors went 
in early for their dinners. 

The stadia work consisted of measuring street lines and determining ele- 
vations by the "stadia system." The location of houses, trees, hydrants, 
fences, and boundary lines was also included in this work. It was on this work, 
that the cutting of from five to three men per party, was most keenly felt. 
There was plenty of work for five men, and for three to do it, of course the effi- 
ciency of the party was considerably lessened. Which all goes to show that 


The way of the transgressor is hard. 

Road work was that done on the North- 
field sewer system. It consisted of running 
street lines and taking profiles. It was on 
this work that it was necessary to go into 
houses for the purpose of measuring the 
cellars. The replies we received, when we 
asked permission at the houses, to go in and 
measure their cellars, were certainly great 
things to show up human nature. Some, 
and in fact the majority of people had no 
objections to our entering their cellars. But 
there were a few, of course, who had to 
growl and grumble, if not absolutely refuse 
to let us in their cellars. We may pardon 
them their breach of good manners on the 
supposition that they might have thought 
we were looking for booze, or other incrimi- 
nating evidence. 

The prize package of work was that known as geodetic, sometimes called 
"Joe Detic" surveying. This work comprised setting up over one station and 
reading the angle between other stations on different hills. These stations 
were placed on tops of hills and on prominent points in such a manner as to be 
visible from several other stations. The beauty of this work was that we were 
left almost entirely alone, as the instructors didn't very often have the am- 
bition to try to reach our elevated stations. It took one man about an hour 
to read one set of angles due to the many repetitions necessary, and thus time 
for leisure for the rest of the party was provided. This leisure time was most- 
ly spent in wooing that fickle being "Sleep." 
The office gang had the gentlemen's work. 
All they had to do was to dress up and look 
wise, and trust to luck of making the bluff 
go. It was their duty to keep the field 
work plotted out, to make maps and details, 
and to make computations and correct the 
errors in the field notes. For the most part 
it was not a job much sought after as the 
aforementioned boss of the office gang did 
not encourage loafing as a pastime. 

A couple of days before the end of the 
school "Big Jake" was sent as a representa- 
tive to Burlington to negotiate for the pur- 
chase of a suitable "Golden Spike." As it 
was a rush order he had a hard time finding 
a jeweler's shop who could fulfill the order. 
However, Jake was not discouraged, — Oh, no! 
Not a bit, — and finally he got the desired shop where he left his order, and 


made arrangements for the transportation of the spike. Upon its arrival in 
Northfield it was zealously guarded, and carried to room five, Jackman, where 
it was placed under lock and key. After supper the last night of school the 
class assembled in the presence of the spike, and proceeded with the solemn 
work of sinking the memorial. Speeches were made, songs were sung, cheers 
were given, and a log of the past month was read. Then "Sam" Cannon, as 
master of ceremonies took the floor, made a pretty dedication address, and as 
he drove the spike to the last resting place, said, "Gentlemen, the Golden Spike 
of the class of 1912 has been driven, and I, as befits my position, do hereby 
announce that Junior Summer School for us is now a thing of the past, and there- 
fore declare this assembly of the class of 1912 to be adjourned."

"Summer School, Sophomore Summer School, where have we heard that 
before?" To every Norwich man it sounds familiar. It means different 
things to different men, but to each and every one it signifies his first experience 
at Norwich without the military life. Two whole weeks of field work and no 
study hours, no formations, no recitations whatever outside of nine hours a 
day in the field. 

It was a beautiful day, August 23, 1910, when about thirty of the class 
gathered at Dodge Hall and entered upon their careers as engineers. We 
were divided into parties of five or six each and given over to the tender mercies 
of the Seniors, who were to be our instructors. After being told a few things 
about the work we went up to the third floor of Dodge Hall where we were sep- 
arated from two dollars, and were put into possession of note books, plumb 
bobs, pencils, etc. 

In the afternoon we got down to the fine points of surveying and did won- 
derful things with the 
tape, axe and stakes. The 
different parties worked 
in places about the hill, 
the best place being, of 
course, where there was 
the most shade. Before we 
knew it the afternoon was 
gone, and we returned to 
the office, our first day of 
summer school was over. 
Of course study in the 
evening was not absolutely 


necessary; but nearly all 
(?) of us being of a very 
studious nature and indus- 
trious stayed in our rooms 
in order to fix in our mem- 
ories the things which we 
had learned. This was by 
no means a newness which 
was soon to wear off. 

On the third day we 
were given new compasses 
to use in our work. They 
were used during the 
whole summer school in combination with other kinds of work. 

There was a little rivalry between the different parties as to which could 
do the closest work. Naturally this tended to make each party more careful 
in its work. But it was very noticeable that the last party to tell how close 
it came out on its polygon or in leveling was nearly always the one who checked 
the closest. Of course once in a while some one insisted upon taking up and 
moving the instrument and the T. P. at the same time, but all this was soon 
overcome, and we were able to make the instructors do some hard thinking. 
It did not take us long one afternoon to learn that we had rather do field work 
than balance polygons. 

We were not a little disappointed when we found out that we would have 
to take the examination Tuesday afternoon. We believed that we ought to 
be at liberty to get acquainted with the rooks. However, we were very sorry 
when summer school was over. 



The Norwich University cadets with their horses, accompanied the First 
Vermont regiment to the recent encampment of the regular and militia troops 
at Pine Plain, N. Y., to perform the duty of mounted scouts for the Vermont 

One of the last war maneuvers of the camp was a war problem to be solved 
between the Maine and Vermont regiments. Due to the very efficient man- 
ner in which these ten cadets performed the duty of mounted scouts the Vermont 
regiment was thoroughly victorious over the Maine regiment. 

Captain Frank Tompkins, U. S. A., instructor in military science and 
tactics at the University, received the following letter from the adjutant of 
the 1st Vermont regiment, which indicates the appreciation of the work of 
the cadets: 

Sir: I am directed by the commanding officer of this regiment to ex- 
press his extreme satisfaction with the manner in which the duties of the ten 
cadets from the Norwich University, transferred to this command for duty 
as mounted orderlies at Pine Camp, were performed. 

Particularly the commanding officer wishes to mention the efficiency of these 
cadets in performing the duties of mounted scouts for infantry. Accurate 
information, promptly and intelligently reported, which was gained in an in- 
creJibly short time, not only enabled this command to, without qualification, 
perform its mission in the problem, but was said by the senior umpire to be the 
finest piece of mounted orderly work seen in camp. The advantage of well 
trained mounted scouts with infantry was demonstrated without question 
in the problem above mentioned. 

Very respectfully, 

Capt. and Adjt. 1st Inf. Adjutant. 



Spntmianmrra nf a Hank on tt|r ^tkf 
nf 1910. 

H h-h-h, what an unearthly hour for a civilized being to get 
up, four-forty-five, just think of it, quarter to five, and we 
have to crawl out of our nice little beds, just because that 
bugler tooted his little brass horn. 

But never mind, most of us are pretty excited, we're going 
to White River Junction today, to camp at the fair. 

Let me see now, Sunday was the eighteenth, then today is the twentieth 
of September, yes, the twentieth of September, nineteen hundred and ten, 
just think, some of us are going to be fifty odd miles nearer home in five hours. 

What's that? Oh yes, we'll have our bundles done up strong, so blamed 
strong that they wouldn't come apart if you put them through a stone crusher. 
Oh, I guess we have sent bundles on the train before, even if we are only two 
weeks old, Rooks. Yes, I think, hot coffee would be great, but what do we 
carry it in? In what, oh sure, why certainly, we knew all the time that the 
Canteen was for that. 

Say you, what's that call, Retreat or Assembly? Mess! Oh sure, I might 
have known it If I had only counted the notes. I'm so blooming sleepy that 
I can's see the hands on my watch. What time is it? 

Hurrah, breakfast is over, and we are almost ready to start, really we are 
all excited; no I don't mean that; we're soldiers now and can't get flabergasted, 
but still I rather wish things would move faster. 

At last we are on the train comfortably seated, but not for long. Alas, 
we are insignificant Rooks, and must entertain the upper-classmen with our 
songs, poems, speeches, official names and such things. Fancy and foolish 
stunts, which are handed down from one generation to another, helped to make 
the time pass more rapidly. 

The Fair Grounds were at last reached and some of us, for the first time 
in our lives, marched before a large crowd of on lookers. The camp was soon 
reached, however, and then 
came the task of putting up 
the large conical tents, each 
squad had a tent, and each 
company had a street, so 
they all went up regularly. 
After they were up came the 
task of ditching them. This 
is a process of digging up the 
turf around the tents and 
leaving a gully for the water 
to run in, thus keeping it out 
of the tents. 




At last we were free to 
walk around the fair grounds 
and amuse ourselves; this we 
did with pleasure, for to 
most people a Country Fair 
is exciting. All along the 
street the fakers were yell- 
ing, "Here's where you get 
your fortune told," "Here's 
the best ice cream on the 
grounds;" "Don't go by here 
without seeing the great 

mechanical toys of the world;" Here's your American Beauties, fifty-seven 
varieties like Heinze's Pickles;" "Here's Electricia, the only girl in the 
world who can stand ten thousand volts of electricity without flinching." Of 
course we had to take these all in, for what fun is there at a fair if you 

Taps was a cheerful sound that night and most of us were so tired that 
after a few moments we forgot we were sleeping on the ground and not on a 
mattress. But never mind, under two nice army blankets, we snoozed to our 
heart's content. 

Reveille sounded at the regular time Wednesday morning but oh! wasn't 
our clothing wet, and wasn't it foggy? indeed it was so heavy that a person 
might think that he was in London for a few moments. 

After a few Calisthenics, and a semi-ice-water wash we lined up for break- 
fast. It was good, too. The cooks, who were from Fort Ethan Allen, cer- 
tainly deserve praise and the meals were served in a Plaza style. 

Tuesday and Wednesday mornings we had our regular drills and police 
duty, and in the afternoons there were exhibition drills. The troop showed 
up well, and the school ought to feel proud of it. 

Guard duty was a new thing to bother most of us for we had our first ex- 
perience of it at the fair. Around midnight, we began to get sleepy, but we 
were soldiers now, and must watch. Nevertheless, some one is known to have 

gone to sleep on Post No. 
4, at the barn. 

Friday morning we 
broke camp, and got every 
thing loaded on the teams 
and were ready to start on 
our first parade at the end 
of the foot ball game in 
the afternoon. 

Norwich easily defeated 
St. Michaels in the after- 
noon by a score of 34-0. 
St. Michaels had a good 
team, but were neither 



heavy nor fast enough. The 
game was attended by a 
good crowd and was very 
exciting at certain stages. 

Immediately following the 
game, the boys after polic- 
ing the ground left for West 
Hartford, which was to be 
our stopping place for the 
night. The roads were very 
dusty, and as the writer 
happened to be Old Guard 
that day he had to trail behind with the wagons and eat dust. 

We pulled into West Hartford about half past seven, and it was dark at 
that time, so our shelter tents were pitched in about any place possible. Very 
few waited to hear taps at night, but unfortunately our company street was 
alongside the railroad track, and some tents were extremely near, so that every 
passing train woke up the participants. 

Saturday morning came as usual, and the Cadets arose early and surveyed 
the grounds where they had spent the previous night. Some were slightly 
surprised, others were more so at the position of our camp. 

About the middle of the morning, we started with heavy marching order 
for South Royalton, a distance of about nine miles. With jokes, songs, cheers 
and stolen apples, we reached there in due time, slightly tired and a little hungry, 
but in the best of spirits. We stopped here over Sunday. Saturday night 
there was a football dance in the open air Pavilion, the music was rendered by 
the Norwich Orchestra and a large party enjoyed the event. 

Sunday was passed in various ways, some attended church, while others 
slept. At night we had an enormous bonfire, and sitting around it, we sang 
songs, and heard a few speeches by Major Smith and some of the football men. 
Monday we were again to start on our hike; this time there was to be a sham 
battle to make things interesting. Co. D. accompanied the wagons, and Co's. 
A. and C. with the troop, were to attack them when we caught up with them. 
We were all given blanks, and Co. D. with the wagons started for Bethel. About 
a half an hour later Co's. A. and C. with the troop, started pursuit. A little 
over half way to Bethel the 
companies heard firing, and 
when we rounded the corner, 
we saw troop B. in a hot 
skirmish with Co. D. In- 
stantly our squads were sent 
out, some up on the hill, oth- 
ers over on the railroad track; 
our squad went over to the 
track. On each side of the 
track was a high wire fence 
which had to be gotten over,

and our orders were to go 
under. Two of us started 
under when the rest decided 
in unison to go over; the 
consequence was that we two 
unfortunates stayed under 
the fence like prisoners until 
the rest of our squad was 

The Battle was well fought 
in some points, and very 
poorly in others, but it gave 

us Rooks a slight idea of what to expect in June, when we reviewed 


A tired and dirty bunch strolled into Bethel that noon, but soon the shelter 

tents were up, and we were resting peacefully for dinner. 

Guard duty again struck us at this stop, and we walked at night to watch 

the horses. 

Tuesday morning the Cadets witnessed a genuine Vermont rain storm, 

and it was indeed a mean day. A general assembly was blown, and a vote 

taken whether or not we should walk through to Northfield, the next stop on 

schedule was Randolph. A unanimous vote was cast in favor of Northfield, 

and after packing our bundles, we started with only poncho, sidearms, rifle and 


This portion of the hike if completed, we knew would form a new record 

for the military school and college world, and also, if completed, would give 

us our nice little white iron beds to sleep in. 

The goal was a great one, and try we must. Our motto was, "Heads 

right up and tails a flying." This with songs and cheers kept us going until 

we reached Randolph. There our good cooks made us some glorious hot coffee 

and toast, which tickled our insides and made us feel dandy. 

Several fellows thought that they had sufficient excuse to drop out here 

and took the train in, but undoubtedly they will think twice before indulging 


The rain never failed to fall that day: the roads were in perfect conditions. 

Oh, yes. But we started on 

the last leg of our famous 

hike. Many of us were wet 

through before reaching Ran- 
dolph; those that wern't, 

were wet now anyway. 

Those who were in the best 

condition, tried to keep the 

spirits up, and succeeded 

well. Our Commandant, 

Captain Tompkins, gave up 

his horse to a lad who was 




all in, and walked the last 14 miles with us. 

This last day of the hike will long be remembered by all the participants 
for everything in Nature was against us. One of the worst rains of the season. 
The march was over several small mountains, the roads were extremely bad, 
the distance was twenty seven miles and the time of actual hiking was six 
hours and forty-five minutes.

Since the dissolution of the Commons Club during the winter term of 
1910, there has been no democratic organization in the college into which the non- 
fraternity men could be admitted. To meet this demand for a Commons 
Club, the men of the two upper classes met and formulated plans for such a 
club to be located at present in the Dole House, in which several organizations 
have been born. Articles of incorporation were first drawn up in order to place 
the organization on a good firm basis. These articles were made a law by the 
General Assembly of the State of Vermont in January, 1911. 

The rooms were furnished at the Dole House so that the members can en- 
joy the bits of home and club life they do not ordinarily get in college. 

It has been the aim of the founders to so frame the constitution that it 
would help the development and growth of a better college spirit.

As a result of a custom in vogue at Norwich, this society was founded by the 
Junior Class. The meaning of the Greak Letters comprising its name have crea- 
ed some discussion, and the combination of names advanced has been interesting 
as well as instructive. Such names as "Death to Muckers," "Dam the Military," 
and "Dont' Touch Mechanics" might possibly get by. 

The meetings of the clan were pulled ofi once a month, at which time the 
elect are allowed to smoke one cigarette as an opener. After that the sewing for 
the month is taken up, followed by such games as "Going to Barre," "Spinning 
the Platter" and etc. A list of those who "also flew" is read as a closing prayer 
for the gathering. The meeting then breakes up, — some to "hit the hay," while 
most of us settle down to grind with the midnight oil (?). 

I fain would continue this literary effort and masterpiece, but can't see any 
possibility of so doing, as the Editor states explicity, that not more than half the 
book can be dedicated to this cause. So, "Good Night."

So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up.

Atfjtettrs in General 

At the Military College of the State of Vermont, we have three forms of ath- 
letics, Football, Baseball and Military drill. The first has developed wonder- 
fully in the last ten years, for whereas N. U. used to be lucky to defeat Goddard 
Seminary, this year she won the Championship of the State by walloping U. V 
M., Seventeen to Zero. The second has probably developed as much in five years 
as the football has in ten and I firmly believe the greater part of the development 
has been due to the efforts of Dr. Whitney and his close attention to details. 
I will digress a little and bring out something that perhaps you've not thought of 
heretofore. After this matter of the rise of N. U. Athletics has been boiled down 
and sugared off, it is my opinion that the true cause will be found in the ever-in- 
creasing number of students from "down country," in other words, civilization. 
It is nice, I know, and rather romantic, to go drifting on, shouting the praises of 
some big husky "phenom." from the country and expecting him to be a "Coy" 
or a "Collins." Nothing doing. Athleties are either born or trained. The nat- 
ural athletes are few and far between. Training brings forth the majority, and 
now here's the point — -the athletically inclined student at the city high school or 
an up to date down country prep, school gets that training from his contests with 
other well trained teams. Also there are better coaches and physical directors 
to give these men instructions. 

N. U., as yet, has failed to recognize that, that which built up Dartmouth, 
Brown, University of Chicago and many other colleges, was athletics and not 
a huge pile of books, suggested by catalogue crammed with courses. As a lid 
on this little spiel I will state that the greatest fault in N. U's. development of 
athletics is the fact that it is a "poor man's college" and whichever way one turns 
with a new project, he is blocked by a lack of funds. It's the same old story, 
"Money is Power;" this applies in the athletic world as well as any other.

Saopball 1910 

Norwich has to look back on the season of 1910 with a fair degree of satisfaction 
and with added hopes for the continuation of the steady gain shown in baseball. 

Although not winning a majority of the games scheduled, still she won a good 
share of them. Several games were lost by very close scores, Norwich outhit- 
ting her opponents, but losing by unfortunate errors or stupid work on bases. 

The team was an exceptionally strong hitting one, outhitting every team they 
lined up against, with the exception of Vermont, whose perfect baseball diamond 
seemed to give them an attack of "buck fever." Those who saw the St. Law- 
rence and St. Michael's game can appreciate what a hard hitting team we had. 
Even the mighty Fisher (who has since made good in the box for the N. Y. 
Americans) experienced the Biblical adage that "Pride goeth before destruction 
and a haughty spirit before a fall." The rude manner in which his speed and 
curves were bumped, on Memorial Day, sent him home chastened in spirit; 
pricked the bubble of Middlebury's confident hopes of an easy victory and sent 
her supporters home in their special train, enveloped in gloom, minus cheers and 
money, and with the cold fact indelibly impressed upon them that a one man 
baseball team is not invincible. 

The team lost only two men by graduation, Captain Reid and Earle, 1st Base; 
both men were strong hitters. Hemenway whose batting was the sensation of 
the season, was elected captain. He should make a strong leader as his game is 
a consistent one at all times. Gordon, again played short and acquitted himself 
very creditably. Parkman pitched a majority of the games, and his work show- 
ed a steady improvement over that of last season. Berry, a freshman of whom 
much is expected this year, pitched a few games and showed good form. 

The freshman class was well represented on the team. Murray, an Exeter 
man, although an outfielder, cheerfully played any position he was placed in,

doing the greater part of the catching. He was the fastest man of the team on 
the bases, his great speed in getting to first on bunts turned many seemingly 
easy outs into hits. 

Hayes, another freshman at 3rd, played a fine fielding game the whole season, 
his throws to first being exceptionally accurate and speedy. He steadily im- 
proved in hitting and at the close of the season was batting consistently; great 
things are expected of him the coming season. 

Second base was occupied by still another freshman, Burwell. Though very 
crude at first, he developed very rapidly in his fielding game, until at the close 
of the season, he was playing the best game at 2nd, that had ever been played 
for Norwich. It is hoped that he will still continue to improve the coming 

The official batting averages were unfortunately lost at the close of the season, 
but the averages printed below are not far out of the way.

Hayes and the rest below. 

Earle at 1st Base made 2 errors out of over 100 chances. 

Piatt fielded for 1000. 

Norwich was represented on the diamond by a team who never gave up fight- 
ing for the game, and were never defeated until the last man was out. They 
played a hard, clean game, and were gentlemen on and off the field.

iFaot Hall l^ason 1910 at Nnrtotrh 

With the beginning of the 1910 foot ball season at Norwich, a system of grad- 
uate coaching was introduced and it certainly proved a great success. "Peanut" 
Potter of the class of '07 was secured to coach the varsity and made a team that 
will long be remembered for its playing. 

Practice was started the first week of college, over two full teams being out, 
but the next week brought out enough more old men to increase the squad to 
thirty-five men. Practice was carried on at the lower parade until the corps 
left for the State Fair, and during each day of the hike the men worked diligent- 
ly, practicing on the land opposite the large grand stand. 

The first game of the season was played with St. Michael's College, of Winooski, 
at White River Junction. Norwich winning by the score of 32 to 0. During 
the game nearly everyone on the squad was given a try out. The game was very 
one-sided as the score indicated, the lighter men from Winooski being outclassed 
by their heavier and faster opponents.

Tuesday, the team, after being cheered by the corps, left Bethel for North- 
ampton to be ready for the game with Amherst the following day. The Amherst- 
Norwich game was won by the former 17 to 0, but the game was not as one-sided 
as one would think. Amherst scored twice during the first period on fumbles by 
Norwich and on a blocked kick which Amherst recovered. Amherst scored its 
only touch down, not seconded by a fluke, during the second period on forward 
passes and line plays. When the third period opened Norwich came back strong, 
carrying the ball the length of the field on trick plays, forward passes and end 
runs, only to lose the ball on a fumble after the Amherst line had been crossed. 
During the remainder of the game both teams tried to score but neither succeeded. 

After the Amherst game the team went to Providence where practice was 
carried on in preparation for the game with Brown the following Saturday. Nor- 
wich hoped to hold Brown to a small score and cross her line if possibe, but was 
not successful in either. Throughout the first period the game was fast, the 
Maroon and Gold line holding her heavy opponents on the one yard line for downs, 
but during the remaining periods of the game the weight and speed of the Brown 
team told and they rolled up a heavy score. Brown used twenty-three men dur- 
ing the game, against thirteen of the cadets, and was thus enabled to play the 
new style game to advantage. During the second period Brehmer was taken out 
on the game with a fractured elbow, and Cannon, whose loss was felt at center, 
with a sprained ankle.

The next game was with Wesleyan and the time before this game was spent 
in hard practice and making changes in the line-up. Underhill was shifted from 
tackle to fullback; Captain Smith, who had not been able to play thus far, took 
his regular position at right tackle; Kelley changed to right half to replace Hem- 
enway; with these changes and heavy practice, the team played Wesleyan and 
was defeated 17 to 0. Several times the Norwich team was within striking dis- 
tance, only to fumble. 

The changes that had been made in the back field worked to good advantage, 
but the line did not have the snap that it showed in previous games. Carpenter 
was laid out in the last quarter on account of an injury to his back. Up to this 
time he had been playing a fast game. 

On October 22, Norwich went to Hartford where she played Trinity, and lost 
9 to 0; this game was one of the best of the season, being even and hard fought. 
Neither side was able to score during the first period, but in the second, Trinity 
got two safties, and during the last period, a touch down. The touch down was 
questioned by Norwich as being the result of an incompleted forward pass which 
was allowed to be called completed. During this period, Norwich succeded in 
getting the ball on Trinity's fifteen yard line but lost it on downs.

The week after the Trinity game was one of the most strenuous put in by the 
squad during the season. This was in anticipation of the Vermont game the 
following week. The men were in fine condition for the game and deserve all the 
credit that they received when the struggle was over and Norwich had won 17 to 

From the very start Norwich had the boys from Burlington guessing and before 
they realized that the game had started, Norwich had scored her first touch down. 
The ball was kicked off to Vermont, who were forced to punt after being held for 
downs. Norwich tried a place kick from the twenty yard line but it went wide. 
Vermont then attempted to make an onside kick, but Carpenter broke through 
and blocked it, recovering the ball and going across the line for the second touch 
down. Vermont kicked off to Norwich, and the period ended with the ball in 
Vermont's territory. 

During the second period after an exchange of punts, Norwich intercepted a 
forward pass, and after a few plays, Kelley went around right end for a touch 
down. No more scoring was done during the game but several spectacular plays 
were pulled off. During the third period, Captain Daley of the Vermont team 
intercepted one of the Norwich's forward passes and was downed on the Norwich 
four yard line by Underhill, after a most sensational run. With three downs in 
which to make four yards, the Vermont boys were sure of a touch down, but they 
were doomed to disappointment, as the Norwich line threw back each play. 

Saturday, November 12th, Norwich played its last game of the season with 
Middlebury, and defeated them 29 to 5. The game was played on a muddy field 
and fast play was impossible. 

After the game the team went to Burlington and broke training at Dorn's. 
Impromtu speeches were made, and S. C. Cannon, '12, was elected captain for 
next year. Cannon played a steady and hard game all season. 

Much credit for the successful season is due to Coach Potter, who is an ex- 
'07 man. It is hoped that Mr. Potter will return and coach again next season. 

In closing, we wish to extend to the Seniors, who are leaving us this year, our 
hearty thanks for the hard work which they put in on the football field to make 
the team what it was. With the loss of Captain Smith, Manager Starr, Burhoe 
and Carpenter, we have a wide gap to fill.

The annual Sophomore-Freshmen game was played November 16th and it 
was a great day for the Sophomores. They won by the largest score ever rec- 
orded in this annual battle. The usual amount of interest was created before 
the contest, although most everyone felt that the Sophs, would win. The fresh- 
men were coached by Carpenter and Colburn, and their coaching was apparent 
by the showing of the team. 

The day was cool, a strong breeze blowing from the west, but presented good 
football weather. The game was hard fought throughout, and was exceptionally 
clean, very few penalties being inflicted. The Sophs scored in the first minute 
of play on a blocked kick which Lee, F. X. gathered in, and ran 40 yards for a 
touchdown. This was only the first one, the other points coming at frequent 
intervals, the Freshmen being unable to stop the assults of their heavier and ex- 
perienced opponents. Most of the Sophomore's gains were made on their right 
side of the line; Burwell making good runs in the open field. 

In the last few minutes of play, Thompson kicked a pretty goal from the 30 
yard line, against the strong wind. The Freshmen were on the defensive most 
of the time; Collins in the first half made two good gains of 20 yards. In the 
second half, they were unable to gain any ground. Weed, Gardner and Kimball 
played well for the "Rooks." 
The line-up was as follows: 

Marble, Miller, Lee, J. P., left end right end, Williams 

Butler, left tackle right tackle, Kimball

Many changes have occurred at Norwich since the arrival of the men of 1911 
on that rainy day, September third, Nineteen-seven. 

We have seen the number of buildings as well as the number of professors in- 
creased. Cavalry has become an established part of our service. Athletics have 
reached their highest point. The hill has become a level campus and we are the 
last class to have experienced the former terraine between buildings, of hollows, 
bumps, and huge bowlders. A new commandant has taken the place of the old 
and the Military Department has seen fit to even add an assistant to the Com- 
mandant. Last but not least our college has been steadily gaining prestige among 
other colleges — partly due to athletics and partly to fraternities. 

At present we have four fraternities — two national, two locals, and a Commons 

As usual our class has dwindled, until today we stand but thirty-one strong 
out of an entrance of seventy-two men. Our college is stronger in numbers than 
it was four years ago and above all the men are better prepared. Entrance exam- 
inations are stirrer and because of this, men are now at Norwich who are more 
competent to finish their course than has formerly been the case. 

Electrical Engineering has been added as a course and has proven to be a de- 
cided success. Each year has found more men following this line of study. 

Life has not, however, been one continual grind. We are not all wise men, 
nevertheless we follow the old adage, "A little nonsense now and then is relished 
by the wisest men." As sophomores we lead the class of 1912 a merry chase, 
until a crimp was put upon our exuberant spirits and some of us enjoyed the taste 
of tours and confinement. 

Little has been said of our prowess in Class Athletics, perhaps the less said the 
better. As athletes we were weak, but as orators— ah, there was our strong halo! 

We did win the interclass debate and we acknowledge that our worthy op- 
ponents were splendid debaters, gifted with flowery language. 

Summer school brought a still closer bond of friendship to each man, for in 
that place the military is set aside and all are on an equal footing. The Senior 
"Party", as usual was held and good spirits prevailed among all. 

Now, as the year is drawing to a close, we are sad — some of us because our di- 
plomas are still "on the fence"; others because we must leave one another; but 


I am ashamed to say most are sad because Commencement means the end of a 
life of abandonment and pleasures supported by paternal pocket books. 

Later on we will appreciate the fact that these four years have been practically 
the happiest of our lives and we will look back upon our Alma Mater, with the 
same love and respect, which we have for our parents and be proud to say we are 
"Sons of Old Norwich".

The old town of Northfield is stirred with excitement. Crowds are rapidly 
passing through the streets and entering the great moving picture theatre over 
the Central Fire Station. The first show is a big success and again the house 
is rapidly filled. Suddenly from up the street is heard a rumble and then into 
the building march a crowd of students, with a number of captives who are des- 
tined to lead the world in big enterprises. They are the first menbers of the now 
famous class of 1912. After entertaining the large audience with their talented 
voices — especially great were the encores received by the Jacobs Bro. and after 
a little impromtu talk by Captain Chapman in which members of the present 
Senior Class were strongly represented, the first event, in which the 1912 crew 
as a class had entered, was finished. 

The first few weeks of our Norwich Life were monotonous. We saw very little 
of ourselves and a great deal of others. In the early days we were not allowed 
to have any spending money as we might be too careless with it. 

We were thunderstruck at the kindness of the upper-classmen and we shall 
always be under obligations for the happy moments we spent with them. 

The annual football game with the Sophomores increased our happiness, by 
being able to defeat them by a score of 11 to 6. 

The first winter of our college course went slowly. Most of us had not then 
acquired the "toosing" habit, some of us haven't yet (?), and still others were to 
young and bashful to meet the maidens of Northfield. Most of our time was 
spent in D Company's passage consulting the oracle "Found Rand" to leain 
what our promotions would be. "Mother Ray" especially was there most of the 
time, when not studying or bucking. 

The Freshman Dance was a grand success and showed our friends just what 
we could do. 

The spring brought color to our frost bitten countenances and by the time of 
the baseball game between the Sophomores and Freshmen we were happy. 

Our usual success followed and we won by the big margin 10 to 3. Commence- 
ment finally came and was a delight to all. We enjoyed the feeling that we had 
passed through the most trying days at Norwich and had reached what seemed 
the highest pinnacle — the renowned state of a Sophomore. 

Perhaps a little notice should be given to our friend, Mechanics. In fact 


from the beginning we showed that we were born civil engineers and no doubt 
at the end we proved we did (????). Oh you makeups! To change the customs 
at Norwich, as we all like to do, we gave a Sophomore Class Banquet which was 
the crowning point of our second year. 

The second commencement left us with promotions which some deserved the 
year before and others didn't get a look in. 

Ah! The Junior Year is here at last and what a glorious good time it means. 
We are upper classmen and know the ropes except a few, for instance when a man 
uses more priveleges than were due all wear that happy smile. Why? Because 
they have been up here to Junior Summer School and are now well broken in. 

We were no back number at our Junior Prom. Oh, no. Right there even 
on the punch. 

In bringing this history of minor details to a close, the writer would like to 
mention a few facts concerning which he has made close observations. Each 
man has done his individual part. The fame the class has obtained does not 
rightly belong to a few but is divided equally among the members. We feel sure 
that when the Commencement of 1912 draws to a close, there will be regrets in 
the hearts of not only ourselves but in the faculty and all those who have come 
in contact with the class of Nineteen Hundred and Twelve.

The Editor of the War Whoop eased into my room the other day and asked me 
to write the history of the Sophomore Class. Imagine that. He might just 
as well have asked me to write the Koran on a postal card as to condense the story 
of 1913 on one page. My heart fails me as I take my pen in hand for it is an in- 
portant job to give to a mut like me. But in the words of immortal Bill, "On 
with the dance." 

When Norwich opened her portals to the class of 1913 we numbered sixty 
strong. Since then various events have combined to reduce that number to 
thirty eight, our present quota. Some found the military a little too strenuous, 
while others had the same trouble with the academic. 

The first part of our rook year was spent in absorbing divers kinds of know- 
ledge. On the hike we discovered how to clean dishes with sand and that a dollar 
in cash represented simply ten set ups to the upper-class men. 

Presently, however, we began to impart a little of our surplus information. 
"Bonehead", "Rods", and others took orderly from the upper-class bucks, time 
after time and seemed to show no embarrassment whatever about it. The un- 
animous verdict by all was that we were the freshest bunch of rooks ever seen on 
the hill. Perhaps we were, but dearest Alcis, we got there just the same. 

In athletic contests for the first year we split even. The football game we 
lost by a paltry 3 to 0, due to various causes. Baseball? I think the score was 
8 to 1. "Plug", "Piker", and the rest of the bunch went after "Checkers" that 
day and kinda evened things up with 1912. 

On August 23rd, 1910 about twenty five of our worthies assembled in Dodge 
Hall. For two weeks, "Pat and his corps of Seniors," initiated us into the mys- 
teries of the levels, compasses, chains, and transits. Our spare time we spent 
in thinking up various welcomes for the incoming rooks. 

September 6th marked the opening of our Sophomore year at Norwich. What 
didn't we do to that aggregation of fresh young things who called themselves, 
"The class of 1914." No one can remember everything, not even the Freshmen. 
Suffice to say that never have we seen a more obsequious and obedient bunch of 
rookies than they were after a week of our instructions. 

Nothing of great interest happened during the Fall-term. Most of us weather- 
ed the hike and enjoyed it more than we did as Freshmen. Incidently our foot- 
ball team defeated the rooks 53 to 0. We had a hard time selecting a team that 
was not all varsity men. "Eu passant," it might be remarked that 1913 is sort 
of there in football. Where would the varsity be without "Undie, Mike, Circ, 
Joe Lee," and other thirteeners. 

At the beginning of the winter term we made the acquaintance of "Dad" 
Winslow, Mechanics and Triweekly tests, at one and the same time. The above 
combination can finish anybody or anything, so I am going to let it conclude my 
little spiel while the joyful, happy go lucky, class of 1913 goes on making history.

"Hands out of your pockets, rook!", "Wipe off that smile." Such were the 
salutations that greeted us, as our noble class entered into the strenuous life of 
Norwich University. 

Strenuous is no word to express the speed with which we learned the very im- 
portant things that a "rook" must know. The class in poetry, by "Swede" and 
"Seaweed" suprised us, but the solo and lullabys sung by "Lucy" had'em all beat- 
en to a frazzle. 

Hardly a day passed but some notorious crime was committed, which could 
only be atoned for, thru the mysterious channels of "Summary Court," usually 

held on the troop passage, room sixty eight. "Judge H f," was stern and 

aided by that well known jury, "Rosy" and "Mike", this trio usually dug up 
enough hot air to make us bite and dig for the "smokes." 

And then came the hike with all its attractions and pleasures. There, in order 
to guard the camp, we stood amid the dark blanket of night (not an " O. D. blan- 
ket") and all alone, watched. Perhaps we trembled when we called out in a 
strong masculine (?) voice, "Who's there?," and instead of the expected answer 
"Friends," received a wallop on the head and were told to beat it Kid. But 
"them" were the days and we will always take great pleasure in future years in 
relating of that last day's march. 

After the hike, hazing was cut out, and all our hopes and fears were center- 
ed on the class football team. That developed into fears however, for after the 
battle we found ourselves buried in a cyclone cellar fifty three feet below sod. 
But it wasn't long before we slipped one over on the "Sophs," for at Reveille 
a few mornings after instead of a '13, a bold '14 stood on yonder pinnacle and 
stared each man in the eye. All hail '14. 

In academic we have the usual sharkes. In fact, if wisdom may be measured 
by names, it is here then that we shine, for according to the laws of 59 7-8, if 
"Sparhawk" had been "Muchmore," there would have been "Sufficient" "Small- 
man" to make a "Sleeper" and then some. 

And here we must say something about that "Rook Quartette." "Kill that 
cat" and "Hang that noise out the window" were its favorite selections. 

Firmly believing that every knock is a boast, we shall continue to lie low until 
the arrival of the next years "Rooks." Then we shall take the official hammer 
and do a little tapping. And so with malice towards none but rather a good will 
and friendship for everybody, we shall try to uphold the college spirit and loudly 
acclaim that "Old N. U. Men" are jolly good fellows. "Auf wieder sehen"

Through the efforts of Prof. Spear, a small German Club was organized at the 
beginning of the fall term. Only the men taking second year German were elig- 
ible. The object of this club was to learn more of Germany, of the customs, of 
the people, and their language. Sergt. Maj. C. E. VonNyvenheim was invited 
to become a member and his acceptance was appreciated by all. 

The meetings were held, once every two weeks, either at Prof. Spear's house 
or in Carnegie Hall. The first part of each meeting was devoted to business as 
might come up. Later conversation and story telling was carried on in German. 
Light refreshments were enjoyed by all before the meeting adjourned. The pres- 
ent officers and members are: 

Professor Spear. 
President, S. W. Marble. 

Vice-President, G. E. Bailey. 

Secretary, O. A. Tilton.

The second annual performance of the Norwich University Minstrels was 
given at the Armory in Northfield, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The 
performance was a much larger production than that of last year. 

The stage had to be enlarged to accommodate the chorus, which consisted 
of sixty voices. For a number of weeks a hard practice was kept up, and the open- 
ing night was greeted with about five hundred in the audience. 

Throughout, the whole preparation had a supervising eye. Mrs. Whitney 
took absolute charge of the musical end and when it is known that she arranged 
the pieces for the several instruments of the orchestra, one can begin to realize 
her task. Her efforts were untiring and to her much of the success is due. Ser- 
geant Leete was an able musical director. 

The curtain rose promptly at eight o'clock with neatly arranged opening 
chorus embracing selections from, 

"I Likes You, Honey," 


"That Moonlight Glide," 

"The Gypsy" (Anvil Chorus,) 

"Cigarette Song," 

"Everybody's Good to Me," 

"Come Josephine in My Flying Machine," 

"Day Dreams," 

"Story of the Flag," 

"Goodbye My Soldier Boy," 

The entire chorus marched onto the stage dressed in white duck trousers and 
the N. U. dress blouse, making in general a snappy assembly. The end men were 
very natty in their gay checkered suits and stove pipe hats. Dr. Whitney as 
interlocutor wore a full white uniform, making a decided contrast and adding 
that refined air to the whole setting. 

The Circle consisted of the following cadets, 
1st Circle — Captain Richmond, Sabin; Lieutenant Burhoe; Sergent Noel, 
Corporal Thompson, Schwenger; Private Tilton, Kelly, Ver Wiebe, 
Putnam, Spencer Muchemore, Lawton, Slade and Kimball. 

2nd Circle — Lieutenant Day; Sergts. Major Gordon; Sergts. Miles, Adams, 
Corporal Rich, Hooper, Miller; Private Hayes, Butler, Brice, Marble 
Mathewson, Partrick, Spencer, Buckingham, Bayley, Mahard, Mun- 
sell, Boulia, Hovey, Bradley, Smallman, White, Beebe and Phillips. 

Murray and Shaw, the first end men introduced, started the ball rolling in 
the fun line. After many jokes at the expense of the townspeople, each sang a 


song. The second set of ends, Leete and Burns, were up to the standard set by 
their predecessors and were a laugh from the start to finish. Then came the climax 
when Colburn and Heathfield entered. During the jovial talks of the end men, 
Cadet Spencer and Kelly rendered selections. 

Wednesday, Feb. 15, 1911 

Murray. "Sugar Moon." 

Burns. "Travel, Travel, Little Star." 

Spencer. "Hush Me to Dreams," with Violin and Cello Obligate 

Shaw. "Good Bye, Christina Swanson." 

Leete. "Play that Barber Shop Chord." 

Kelley. "Star of my Dreams, Shine On." 

Heathfield. "Wise Old Indian." 

Colburn. "You're Gwine to git Somethin' What You Don't Expect." 

Leete. (Southern Croon.) — "Little Puff of Smoke, Goodnight." 

Thursday, February 16, 1911 

Murray. "I'm an Honorary Member of the Patsy Club." 

Burns. "I've Got Your Number." 

Spencer. "Hush me to Dreams," with Violin and Cello Obligation. 

Shaw. "I'm going When the Weather Suits My Clothes." 

Leete. "Fussy Rag." 

Kelley. "Star of My Dreams, Shine On," 

Heathfield. "Casey Jones." 

Colburn. "Who are You With To-night?" 

Leete. (Southern Coon) — "Little Puff of Smoke, Goodnight." 


1. Magnus and Murray, Clog Dancing. 

2. Fisher, Banjo Solo, — Medley, "Old Southern Melodies." 

Intermission of 5 minutes 

3. Burlesque Boxing Match — 


Phila. Jack, the sleepy boy, Clarence Murray; 

Mr. James Jefferson, a renowned pugilist, Colburn; 

Referee, Rich; Timekeeper, Butler; Seconds, Thompson and 


4. "Hats, Hats, Hats," from the Bachelor Belles." 
Baritone Soloist, A. P. Leete. 

Intermission of 5 minutes. 

5. Colburn and Heathfield as two eccentric German comedians in the Light 

House Sketch. 

6. W. A. Heathfield will give an impersonation of a well known and popular 
Norwich character. 


7. Grand Finale, Entire Chorus. 

Solo, "Good Bye My Solider Boy," A. L. Kelley. 

Under the able leadership of Conductor Newcomb and Mrs. Whitney, the 
orchestra filled in the Intermissions and made the show run along smoothly. 
The orchestra consisted of, 

1 st Violin, F. E. Rabidou, 

2 nd Violin, L. P. Bayley, 
Cornet, Cadet Duham, 
Viola, Cadet J. H. Buck, 

Flutes, H. Shaw and W. T. Sparhawk, 
Clarinet, W. Garland, 
Bass, M. Sanborn, 
Trombone, Cadet Cram. 
French Horn, Cadet Lowell, 
Traps, Cadet Magnus, 

It would be a difficult task to pick out any one individual player who was 
essential to the performance. The mass work was most creditable and all honor 
can be taken by each man, for everyone was necessary for the good of the whole 
and it is hoped that this spirit will still remain in future enterprises. 

On Saturday Night, the show was given in the Barre Opera House, Barre, Vt. 
The programme carrid out was similar in character as the one given the first 
evening in Northfield. To the specialties were added the Aeroplane Sketch by 
Colburn and Heathfield. The audience were very well pleased with this per- 
formance and applauded the act continually.

It would be far from prudent to close this little volume without a mention 
of our friend and able instructor, Sergeant Cody. 

During the period of two years, which he has been with us, he has always been 
ready and willing with advise or a helping hand. On the hike he was ever willing 
to put us out of the snarls of guard duty or any other kinds of meshes we found 
ourselves entangled in. 

His face is always a familiar sight on the athletic field and when it came to 
the true "Norwich" man, he was one of the foremost. 

To him is owed a part of the highest efficiency of the Cadet Corps, for he is a 
soldier of the best type, and the best ideal of manhood for a young man to look 
up to. 

Sergeant Cody enlisted in the Regular Army fourteen years ago, and served in 
the Philippines for six years. He' was detailed as instructor of the Vermont 
National Guard in the fall of 1909. 


f alo at Nnnmrij. 

With the arrival of Captain Tompkins as military instructor at Norwich, a 
new department of athletics was immediately established. Polo, the most popu- 
lar sport in the Army, naturally found immediate popularity at N. U. Every day 
members of the Troops can be seen plugging away at the wooden balls, while the 
horses go plunging and rearing at the unusual conduct of the riders. The horses 
themselves seem to like the game and an almost human intelligence is found among 
them. In fact a great many of the horses are like old veterans. 

It is hoped in the near future to be able to arrange games with the officers of 
Fort Ethan Allen, each visiting team to use the opponents horses. If this is done 
it ought to strengthen the interest shown in Polo here at N. U. and would bind the 
ties of frendship already shown by the officers of Fort Ethan Allen for the cadets 
of this institution. 

Norwich is probably one of the first colleges in this country to take up Polo 
as a form of athletics. Therefore it is up to every cadet to do his part, to make it 
a success here and thereby push N. U. to the front in the eyes of the public.

®V Itermmtt National duarb (Eaualrg Jktaperttim. 

The first annual inspection of the Norwich Cavalry occured April 13th, the 
inspecting officer being Captain Boyd of the Tenth Cavalry, which is stationed at 
Fort Ethan Allen. 

The order of events consisted of squadron review, followed by squadron 
drill, after which the two troops were inspected in heavy marching order. The 
latter included inspection of arms and field and arms equipment. 

The squadron was then put through Butts Rifle and Physical to the music 
of the Cadet Band. After this Troop B was inspected mounted, going through 
the drills, including straight cavalry movements and monkey drill. An inspection 
of quarters closed the events of the day. 

The inspector expressed himself as very well pleased with the appearance of 
the troops in general and especially with the excellent condition of the rifles, they 
being in much better order than any other rifles, inspected by him among the 
National Guard. 

It is of interest to note the improvement there has been in the cavalry drill 
during the last year. 


®lje Brrmont National (guaro Signal (tops Jnajmitmu 

On Tuesday, April 18th, Captain Wallace, U. S. Signal Corps, inspected 
Company A. Although the Company had only recently received the signal appara- 
tus, yet they had become efficient in sending messages by the various methods 

The order of events consisted, first of the inspection in heavy marching order 
after which packs were unslung and a few movements in company drill were exe- 
cuted. Following this was an inspection of rooms, where the packs were unrolled 
and the field equipment inspected. 

Then came exhibition signal work, the company being divided into three 
sections; one for flag signalling, one Helograph squad and one for work with the 
field buzzers. Messages were sent with ease and rapidity. The buzzer squad had 
a wire laid from Alumni Hall to Jackman, with men at each place, also a 
station at Carnegie. In general the inspection was up to the high mark and

Washington, D. C. 

(Through Military Channels.) 

Having completed the inspection of the 1st Squadron, 1st Regiment of 
Cavalry Organized Militia of Vermont, (2 troops) I have the honor to submit the 

1. I recommend that so long as there is a regular cavalry officer in charge 
of this squardon that he be required to make the annual inspection. 

2. The members of this squadron are cadets of the Norwich University, are 
under daily training and discipline ;the degree of efficiency as militiamen is so great 
that I cannot now make any recommendations tending toward their improvement. 
Their organization was changed January 1911 from a battery of field artillery to 
that of a squadron of two troops of cavalry. 

Their equipment is on the way. 

Very respectfully 
C. F. Boyd, 

Captain and Adjutant, 10th Cavalry. 


ffifautenant Sljajjrr at ttr^ Armg iMan^uu^rs, 
8>an Antonio, ufcxas. 

1st Lieut. Guy E. Thayer, Signal Corps, V. N. G. Enlisted Company I, 1st 
Infantry, V. N. G., June 26th, 1907. Promoted to Sergeant, March 15th, 1909. 
Attended the National Guard Encampment at Burlington in the season of 1907 
and 1909; at Pine Plains, N. Y., in the season of 1908 and 1910. Marksman 2 
years, Sharpshooter 1 year, and Expert Rifleman 1 year. Company riile team 
2 seasons, 1908 and 1910. Entered Norwich Univ. in the fall of 1907, member of 
the class of 1911. Promoted to Corporal 1909, to Sergeant 1910, and to 1st Lieu- 
tenant Company A, V. N. G. Signal Corps 1910-11. Delegated by Captain 
Frank Tompkins to represent the Signal Corps of the Vermont National Guard at 
the Army Maneuvers at San Antonio, Texas, under direction of the War Dept. 

for the instructions of the National Guard Officers at their encampment maneu- 

It was my good fortune to be selected to represent the Signal Corps of the 
V. N. G. at the joint encampment maneuvers and field instruction of the regular 
army and militia at San Antonio, Texas. 

I left Northfield on the afternoon train April 1st, 1911, for St. Albans, where 
I was to meet Captain Pell of Co. B, 1st Infantry, V. N. G. 

We started from there at 8 P. M. and traveled by way of Montreal and Chic- 
ago on the Grand Trunk R. .R We traveled from Chicago by way of the Wabash 
R. R. and from St. Louis to San Antonio by way of the Missouri, Kansas and 
Texas R. R., making the trip of about twenty-two hundred miles in a little less 
than four days. 


It snowed nearly all day Sunday and it seemed as if Northfield weather was 
bound to follow us; after leaving Chicago the weather cleared and as we came into 
Oklahoma the trees were all leaved out, roses in blossom and the contrast between 
this and the weather we just left, seemed very great. We left about a foot of 
snow in Northfield and the temperature through the middle of the day down 
there was around 90 or 100 at this time of year. 

On arriving at San Antonio, Texas, a thriving city of about one hundred and 
fifty thousand inhabitants, one could not help but notice the easy going way of the 
people and the many little parks with their shade and palm trees scattered about 
the city gave the place an air of ease and comfort. 

We reported at division headquarters at nine A. M. April 5th, CaptainPell 
was assigned to company I, 10th Infantry and I was assigned to company D, Sig- 
nal Corps. There were many other National Guard officers from the different 
states who reported at the same time, each one being assigned to some Army 
Officer for instruction. 

About the first question asked us was, "Are you going to take the typhoid 
dope?" which is compulsory for the regular Army but is optional for the Nation- 
al Guard Officers. Although twelve thousand men have been in camp over five 
weeks there has not been a case of typhoid. Recruits on reporting are given 
there first hyperdermic of the typhoid prophylactic, then at the end of ten days a 
second is given and ten days later the last one is given. This treatment according 
to German Scientists gives a person immunity from typhoid nearly seven years. 
If one has had typhoid it may make him feel a little sick, but a person who has 
never had typhoid will be able to attend his regular duty. Army Officers who 
have seen as high as 50 per cent of their command sick from typhoid are the 
ones who can realize best the value of the innoculation, it is also a business propo- 
sition for business men. 

The water in camp is taken from artesian wells and very good, but the water 
out on the road is not as good, in some cases it is brought in tubs and put into 
cisterns, and the water from the streams which are not very numerous is usually 


The sanitary conditions in camp are very good, crude oil and hay being 
burned in every place where flies might carry infection, lime is also used as a dis- 
infectant. The soil is of an impervious nature and each kitchen has its open 
fire with a crude sort of firebox dug out and lined with coarse stones in which a 
fire is burned most of the time, the course refuse from the kitchen being put direct- 
ly on the blaze, and the kitchen slops are poured on the hot stones. 

The Division Bakery cooks all of the Bread used by the soldiers, the bread 
being made in tents and delivered about camp. The cooks are enlisted men and 
make bread of the best quality, the ten stoves used for this purpose have a capaci- 
ty of nearly 12000 pounds of bread each day. 

Mesquit and scrub oak which nearly cover all of the waste land are about 
the only wood available for fuel. 

The daily camp routine begins with reveille at 6 A. M. then after breakfast 
stable duty and drill take up nearly all the morning, after dinner there's more drill ; 
guard mounting by regiments is at 5 P. M. and retreat at 5 30 P. M. The evenings 
the men have to themselves. 

Each outfit has its drills in close and extended order, and the cavalry drills 
for the most part with the provisional regiments of six and nine troops. 

The three Brigades of the Division go out in {turn on hikes which last from 
two to seven days; and this is the time the Signal Corps is of particular value as 
means of comunication between Divisions and Brigade Camps. One wireless 
section remaining in camp, while the other section goes with the head of the col- 
umn. By this means the commander at Division Headquarters can direct the 
movements of the Brigade in the field from his tent and have his map spread 
before him. The wireless pack sets are put on pack mules. When communication 
is desired with another point of the command all the wireless section has to 
do is to fall out, set up its wireless instrument and call the home station. In this 
way I have seen communication established between stations twenty-five miles a- 
part in seven minutes from the time the section dropped out of the marching col- 
umn. The pack sets are efficient for distances not exceeding thirty miles and the 
power for these sets being produced by a small hand generator. They also have 
as part of their equipment a large wireless set which is mounted on a two wheel 
cart the power for this machine being made by gasoline engines attached to the 


motor: With this instrument at Division Headquarters communication is easily 
carried on with Eagle Pass, also El Paso which is over one hundred and eighty 
miles distant. One advantage of the wireless lies in the fact that communication 
can be established and taken down very quickly and the march with the column 
can be resumed with a little loss of time. 

However in many instances the wire outfit is more practicable and the wire 
can be laid with great rapidity. Even while the wire is being laid communication 
can be held between the man at the end of the wire and the man on the wire cart, 
although the cart is going as fast as the horses can run. In this way the movement 
of the reel carts can be directed by the person in command of the wire section, and 
he can also recieve reports from as many parts of the field as he has wires. 

Improvements are being made all of the time so that the Signal Corps is 
proving istelf an indispensible branch of the Army. Let me cite an example 
of its durability. One morning the wireless pack set was put upon a new mule 
which got away from the man who was leading him, and the mule started down 

through a regiment of mountain artillery making a path for himself wherever he 
wished to go. During his rampage the cinch band loosened and both wireless 
outfits went more than fifteen feet into the air and landed with a dull thud on 
the ground; as it was then time to open the station with the other section which 
was on the road with the Brigade the instruments were set up and with but very 
little adjustment, communication was established. 

On these maneuvers by Brigades, advance guard duty was taken up and 
one night one of these movements lasted until after midnight. 

Another problem was to find out whether a Brigade with all its wagon trains 
took up as much or more room space than had been figured out theoretically. 
This was worked out with surprisingly correct results. 

Connected with the Division are two Wright Biplanes, which made success- 
ful flights when the weather permitted, the machines frequently remaining in the 
air for over an hour. There have been very few accidents and the Aeroplane will 
be one of the instruments of war in the future. The Parmalee Bros, have a Mono- 
plane of French design which they are to try out soon. 


The week of the sixteenth a flower festival was being held and arrangements 
were made for a Military Parade which was over four miles long and was the most 
pretentious since the Civil War. 

One has to be constantly on the lookout for tarantulas and rattlesnakes. 
Especially is this true at bed time as I saw two large tarantulas that had been taken 
from soldiers' beds and a large number of rattlesnakes were killed about camp, 
the largest one having fourteen rattles. 

Any National Guard Officer who attends the War Maneuvers with the idea of 
learning something by which he can improve his own command has the right idea 
and will learn much, for the Army Officers have had the experience and it is a 
pleasure to them to give all the instructions they can. 

For my part I am of the opinion that no better type of a business man can be 
found than among the Officers of the United States Army. 

The trip was very pleasant and enjoyable, as well as very instructive. 

We started for home the night of the eighteenth and arrived in Northfield 
the twenty-second.

A compliment to the 1910 FOOT-BALL TEAM 
from a friend down town. 

Only once did Vermont come near scoring at all, and then Underhill was there 
with the goods like the Chimes of Trinity. 

And wasn't CarpenterJohnny-on-the-Spot when that kick was blocked and 
he went over the line for that second touchdown. 

Didn't Colburn use his bean throughout the game? 

Burwell is just as good behind the line as he is at straightening out Fisher's 
benders in the springtime. Cannon showed them that you didn't have to 
weigh 200 to play center. 

And what about Dan Starr, with his 195 pounds, and Alvord and Captain 
Smith? They certainly formed a stone wall, which stopped Vermont every time. 

Those ends, Taft, Lee and Weed were down the field under every punt and 
they showed Vermont how to break up some of her own plays. Hemenway's 
name wasn't in the line up, but Vermont knew that he was around when he 
hit their line. 


But why go into details? It wasn't individual work that won the game. It 
was team work and jam up stuff at that. 


Don't buck the Military too hard, for you are liable to flunk subjects. 

Don't stay late with your lady friends, for you are liable to get your privileges 

taken away. 
Don't smoke during study hours, for the O. D. can smell smoke. 
Don't shoot "snipes" into the corridor when a yellow uniform is around, for you 

are liable to hear about it. 
Don't dust your gun with a blacking brush, for shoe blacking shows on white

Air— The Wearing of the Green 

If to college you will want to go and wish to get in fine, 
Just listen ; I will sing of one that will make you stand in line. 

It's way up in the high old state, where the mountains they are green, 
And the fellows all wear uniforms, they think they're so serene. 

With their heads held high, their chins way up, they think they're just the 
But if at times you'd peek at them, they're nothing but a bluff! 

There's Murray — he'd stay up all night , wouldn't go to bed, 
If he could only get your ear and fill it with baseball. 

He's a peach at kicking foot-ball, he's every fellow's pal, 
But if you're with him half an hour he'll wind up on his "Val." 

There's one lad in college who thinks he's just the thing, 
He throws his chest with all his might and imagines he can sing. 

He trys to get the tenor — at music he's a shark, 
When he thinks he's right in harmony, it's like ad doggie's bark. 

Great big hands and awful feet, and at thir base he plays. 
You must meet this black eyed darky, for his name is "Billey"Hayes. 

There's Hemenway our captain, who hails from Portland, Maine, 
He can hit the ball with all his might, but he 'd talk you most insane. 

He's nearly off his trolley when he hears from near and far, 
Say "Hemenway, have you got a match? — We want a Portland, Star." 

Parkman, nicknamed "Checkers," he's a peach at pitching balls, 
He's always preaching base-ball, for he played with Bellows Falls. 

If you think he's up and coming you'll get an awful shock, 
Poor "Checkers" he's a hayseed and a regular country gawk. 

Our college plague is Gordon, he's manager of the base-ball team, 
When reveille is sounded he is deep in some sweet dream. 

But the Norwich boys are frisky and he's such an awful bore, 
When it's time to leave the feathers, out goes Gordon on the floor. 

He never lets the boys alone if they fix their rooms up slick, 
He sneaks around when all is still and plays some horrid trick. 

If ever we catch him at it we'll wallop him with the broom, 
We'll make him beg for mercy for making rough house in our rooms. 

Concord sends us Berry, from dear old New Hamp. state, 
The fellows call him "Bonehead," but at pitching he is great. 

The poor ding toed collegian, at mechanics up and missed 
But he'll improve in 1912 when some nice sweet girl he's kissed. 


There's a very dwedful fellow who doesn't give a wap, 
He talks so kinda foolish, and he's such a handsome chap, 

First Sergeant of our Company A, Johnny Miles is his name, 
But when he talks of "Dwess Pawade" you'd have to blush with shame. 

"Doc" Whitney is our base-ball coach, he'll also cure your ills, 
And if you have a pain or ache he'll dose you up with pills, 

The Norwich bo — ys just love him, he's honest and so fair, 
His temper is so even, and the doctor doesn't swear! 

If the fellows feel the least bit sick, the slightest pain or ache, 
They'll rush for Doctor Whitney and illness try to fake. 

But he's a brainy doctor and does the thing up square, 
You'd travel, yes for miles around and you couldn't match his hair. 

There's one up here who talks a lot, "Plug" Burwell, he's a card, 
To be First Sergeant here next year he's working hard. 

He's deep in love with one nice girl and soon a bride he'll take 
A wedding down at Winsted, where there's such a pretty lake. 

Unlucky chap, Oh! Sad, sad tale! our poor dear comrade "Plug," 
A horse got frisky, took his hoof, and kicked him in the mug. 

No Easter trip down home for "Plug" he'll stay at old N. U. 
A.nd every time he thinks of it, the poor chap he'll boo-hoo. 

Two that Norwich boasts of, about coin they can't agree, 
Mahard, he wants what's his, and Shepard, so does he. 

Each tells the other he is wrong, he must try and do what's right. 
Say "Pay me what you owe me or there'll be an awful fight." 

Ned Allen is so tall and slim, he can almost touch the sky, 
At racing he can not be beat if he would only try. 

His home is down at Hartford and you can guess the rest 
None would use you as Ned Allen does, if you should be his guest. 

Then shout, Hurrah for Norwich, our military school, 
Where the boys are all so anxious to follow out the rule. 

While half of us you must admit are an awful pack of rubes 
And the other half without a doubt are a great big bunch of boobs. 


Oh, we'll stick by dear old Norwich with its military drills, 
We'll march around and think we're great while father pays the bills, 

With our captains and sergeants, and the boys who beat the drums, 
We'll pull and haul together, we're a pack of Norwich bums.

will assign him 2 hours of police duty. 

3 Thou shall not curse or use profane language, for the result is police duty 
or demerits. 

4. Six days shall thou toe the mark, and be exceedingly good, for the seventh 
which is Sunday, thou shall go to church and sleep. 

5. Honor thy Captains and Lieutenants for they are wise guys and will sure- 
ly stick you if they can. 

6. Thou shall not sleep over Reveille. 

7. Thou should not lie to the Major. 


8. Thou shalt not horse the Military. 

9. Thou shalt not lie to the O. D. when he says, "Thou art smoking", for

The Psalm of the Cadets. 
The Corn's eyes are upon me, I cannot sleep. He maketh me pay attention 
to the Sermon, I cannot nod. Yea, though the speaker be dry and weary there 
is no rest. His watchful eye is upon me, and I may read neither paper nor book, 
nor have a peaceful nap. Verily I have no rest. Exalted I shall be to become a 
senior and return to the ways of the wicked. Then may I sleep and read in 
peace, and I shall do all these things without the eyes of the Com. upon me.

The training of the mind by 
constant application to classic or 
business principles forms a habit 
for knowledge which makes success 
in professional or business life. 

Very few people who learn to

it. The millions in savings banks 
bear grand testimony to the great 
worth of the habit.
